june reading

Author: angiem, 06 13th, 2013

Well, hello friends! How has everyone been doing? I, for one, have had the busiest May ever! It was the yearly renewal of my business, and as always, I freaked out that something would go wrong. Nothing went wrong. Nothing ever does, but isn’t worrying so much fun, anyway?

Unfortunately, the only thing I wrote during May were medical notes and Facebook status updates, and the only things I read were medical notes and Facebook status updates. On June 1st I sat down to write but I couldn’t manage more than 70 words in 2 hours. Then I sat down to read. And fell asleep.

So I gave myself permission to take a break from writing and reading for two weeks, and instead watch all the movies I had meant to watch for the last two years.

And boy, was that fun! But movies get boring after a while. Too predictable. The one I have on pause now has been on pause for the last two days, and I’m thinking I just won’t watch the rest of it. I’ve had it with movies for the moment.

So, I’m getting ready to start on the books. Which one should be first?

    I can’t read during the summer for some reason the suns heat puts me to sleep. Summer is for movies mostly. Nice to see you back and glad things are going well.

    Glad your June is looking better, I hope! Sorry for the bleh movies. I still love them even if they’re bleh just to escape into another world for a while and not have to think too much. Hugs to you sweet gal!

    I’m looking forward to reading The Light Between Oceans. It’s working its way to the top of our book club list. xo

  4. Anne Says:

    I am listening to Two Graves by Preston and Child and Six Years by Harlan Coben. So far so good.

    Yay! I’ll email it. We watch lots of movies and shows, too, but its probably because of Netflix and Apple TV. (Wow…both those words were automatically spell/text checked). So if you want some visual escapes here are my recommendations:
    Shows on Netflix or Apple TV:
    White Collar
    Arrested Development
    Downton Abbey
    Better off Ted
    Raising Hope
    And our guilty pleasure vampire diaries, lol

    Margin Call (this is not mindless movie you may need your mind awake to watch this)
    How to get married & stay single (French movie)

    I also just finished reading Herman Kochs The Dinner…very good.

    Good night and hope June is more relaxing than May.

    Ruth, those are great recommendations! That French movie sounds enticing.

    Anne, I do like Harlan Coben. Haven’t read anything of his in a very long time.

    Pamela, I am so glad you stopped by! I miss your beautiful writing! And, no reason for it, but I have been a horrible blogging friend. I have to make time and visit my favorite people.

    Thank you, Diane! I know. I usually love the escape. I think I did an overkill on movies, though.

    Jena, thanks. Summer is my favorite time for reading. Actually, any time of the year is my favorite time for reading. Hope your summer’s going well.
